The Animal Magnetism Team has been watching over our two energetic, gregarious pups for over two years now. Whether it's weekday walks, beach day excursions or overnight boarding I know our boys are in good hands and it allows us to travel and work without worry. We are beyond grateful and recommend their services to anyone who is looking for a trusted (and insured) pet professional service. More...

I just started using Animal Magnetism and feel so lucky to have found Lori, Heather, and their team! My dog is pretty nervous so I was worried about how he'd do on a pack walk, but they've taken the time to make him comfortable and he definitely seems like a happy/tired boy when I get home from work. Pick up and drop off is easy (I just bought a lock box)! More...

I can't say enough about Lori and her team. They understand that our pets are our babies and treat them like they're their own! It's so obvious that they're in this business because they love it, and they're experienced and knowledgeable to boot. My husband and I have had to travel A LOT this year which means leaving our two kitties at home a lot more than we'd like to. Thank god for Lori! I tend towards worry (see aforementioned reference to my pets being my babies ), and Lori is always super communicative, answers all my questions (even when she's not watching the cats), sends photos, gives recommendations, and takes wonderful care of our kitties. Knowing they are in good hands really helps make all the travel that much easier! More...

Highly recommend Lori and Heather and the whole crew at Animal Magnetism! They have been taking our 1.5-year-old yellow lab Joe for walks and he comes home happy and tired- what more could you ask? They're so good with him, even though he's a big, crazy, jumping, mouthy puppy, we know we can trust them to take great care of him. He always looks out the front window, waiting for them to get him! So glad we found Animal Magnetism! More...

Lori & team have been great with my toy Aussie who thinks he is the boss. I know that when they come to walk him that he is in good hands. I have been using them for years now and I absolutely trust their service! My little guy is always better behaved when he has his walks and I don't feel so guilty leaving him home while I am at work. I also love the fact that they take the time to wish Happy Birthday to each pet client, nice personal touch! More...

Animal Magnetism is the very best pet professional service I have had the pleasure of hiring and working with. I totally trust Lori and Heather and their professional staff to take care of my precious dogs Wally and Kodi. I have trusted their service for over a decade. They are skilled at taking care of elderly or sick animals both dogs and cats. They have administered medications, helped with animals recovering from surgery as well as providing fun exercise for our dogs. We love them but more importantly, our dogs love them too! They are the very best! 100% endorse! I will consider them dear friends forever. More...

Very good pet sitting service. Lori et al always take good care of our pet chickens while we're away. They are very reliable, responsive and really seem to enjoy being around our girls. I highly recommend them.

Wonderful service with very responsible owners and staff. They really cared for my dog and this was evident with the outstanding communication exhibited. I only wish I could have taken them with me to Oregon. More...

I don't know what we would do without Lori/Animal Magnetism! The website and booking/payment process is super easy and convenient to use, and the value is excellent - the pack walks give my dogs an hour or more of exercise, engagement, and social time with other dogs. Moreover, the intangibles about Lori and her services are what we love.  My dogs are usually pretty reactive and one is very anxious and bigger so  people usually perceive him negatively. We were having trouble finding a good fit with dog care providers, because some people say they "love dogs" but they really mean "dogs that aren't reactive" or "dogs that never deviate from their training" or "dogs that are so docile you never have to worry about them doing anything". But Lori clearly loves ALL dogs and knows how to - and cares enough to - put in the time to get to know them and gain their trust. At our meet and greet, she put our dogs' comfort first, adjusting to their behavior and comfort level (versus people who just reach their hand out and expect dogs to instantly warm up to a stranger, and then act appalled when they become defensive or anxious). It wasn't long before our dogs came to love and trust her and Heather, and we never have any hesitation about using their services.  On several occasions, we've had to ask her to make last minute adjustments or bookings due to emergencies, and she's so responsive and helpful every time.  Most recently, we texted Lori from the hospital and she was able to take the dogs last minute for a few days. That extraordinary level of care, compassion, and service cannot be faked or bought and is truly, truly rare.  We are so happy to be part of the Animal Magnetism family! More...

I cannot say enough positive things about the Animal Magnetism Team! I have been using them, Monday through Friday, for a little over two years now. They are very trustworthy, dependable, timely, responsive and most of all caring. I never have any doubts about leaving my little guy, Oliver, with them. They truly treat him like he was their own dog. I have the Ring Doorbell/Camera and actually heard one of them tell Oliver that they loved him after dropping him off. My heart melted hearing that! I highly recommend these wonderful ladies to anyone that is looking for a dog walker. More...

We are so grateful that our friend recommended Animal Magnetism! They were so professional during our consultation and extremely detailed making us feel like our golden retriever was in good hands! He loves his weekly walks and we feel comforted knowing that we can always count on the team to pick him up, take him for a long walk (almost 2 hours!), and bring him home safely. More...

100,000% recommend. My partner and I contacted Animal Magnetism on pretty short notice (less than a week) about caring for our cats for 13 consecutive days while we were out of town. Lori quickly got in touch with me, came to my place the next day, surveyed my apartment, listened to all my pet parent worries, instructions about food and supply locations in the apartment, and specific instructions about where to throw out trash litter, how to get in and out of apartment, etc, and a bunch of other info like what time we thought they should come by each day.I didn't need to contact any other services because it was just clear she and Animal Magnetism know what they're doing. After you chat with them, they use a detailed online form to create profiles for your pets/home and are responsive via text, email or phone.For 13 days, Lori or one of her colleagues checked in on our two cats once a day for about 20 or 30 mins. That included feeding wet food, refilling a giant hard food bowl, checking water levels, cleaning/disposing of litter, and texting/emailing us daily photos assuring us that both cats were alive and well. Our smoke alarm even started acting funky at one point, which Animal Magnetism notified us about and we dealt with. And to my pleasant surprise, they even leave little report cards for you to go over when you return from your trip.Reasonably priced (way cheaper than boarding at a kennel, vet, or pet hotel) and they offer other types of way more involved care than the basic services we arranged.The whole process was seamless, Animal Magnetism made us feel at ease, no complaints from us at all, will 100% use them again whenever we next leave town. Can't thank them enough for carrying out their services for our cats and visiting our apartment on 2 holidays -- Christmas and New Years.P.S. The more organized and clear you are with your instructions for Lori and her team about caring for your pets/getting around your home, the better your whole experience will be. More...

I met Lori more than 10 years ago when she took great care of my kitties. Now Lori and Heather and their amazing team take care of my Daschund/Chiwie mix, Holden. He loves going on walks and looks forward to them digging him out from underneath the comforter each day! They are professional, kind, caring, and dependable. Thanks to you for loving my baby!

I enjoy traveling quite a bit and it is has been hard to get a reliable Petsitter especially when you have three ducks. They have always been able to accommodate our busy schedule and extended vacations. I highly recommend this service as there have always been extremely reasonable in their pricing and have gone out of their way to keep our pets happy and safe. More...

My pup and I LOVE these guys. They are the only people I trust to take care of my Stella. They treat her like she is their dog and she loves them. For dog walking, overnight care and their fun beach days, Heather and Lori are the best call you'll make for your pet. More...

Animal Magnetism is awesome! They have been our walkers/dob boarders for the last two years. If you are looking for a company that is as professional as a big corporation or app, but as friendly and attentive and accommodating as a family friend, they are the ones to go with. They definitely care about the dogs and have sound judgement and a small roster of walkers, all of which we know by name at this point. Our dog is 13 has multiple special needs (recent stroke, bad joints, fussy stomach and multiple meds. Animal Magnetism handles these issues very well. They also leave a report card for to let you know how your dog did after each walk. They have even been here for us during family emergencies, last minute requests for walks (which they do if they are able) and never miss meds. We're luck to have them. More...

We have been using Animal Magnetism for more years than I can recall for dog walks and grooming for our lab and boston/rat terrier mix and they are incredible. My dogs are so excited every time they get picked up for their walks. They also do beach days which my dogs are big fans of. I trust them implicitly. More...

When the owners away the ducks will play. I am glad I found Animal Magnetism. Having pet ducks is no easy challenge. It is a lot of work to come over and let the dogs out every day and then feed them and clean the pen at night. I do travel a lot and they have always been able to accommodate a busy traveling schedule. The prices are more than reasonable for the amount of time and work they spend with the ducks . I have nothing but good things to say about this company. I need to get the flock out of here. More...

Heather and Lori did an amazing job taking care of our little Eloise. We cannot say enough wonderful things about these two people. We got pictures of our baby while we were gone, we got updates as to how she was doing and they came to pick her up and they dropped her off to meet our schedules and to take care of our whole family with wonderful wonderful attention. They took care of our family the way they'd take care of their own, if not better. Not only do we recommend them, we insist on them. More...

I wish I could give them ten stars. They are that amazing!! When I first was referred to them by a friend. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I had a 6 mos old puppy that was out of control. After just a few weeks I noticed a huge difference in my puppy. He was no longer jumping on everyone that walked through door or bitting ( more like nipping )... still a cause for concern as I have an elderly mom and young nieces and nephews. After 6 mos of using their service my puppy is awesome. He is super sweet and calm. He absolutely loves when the girls come to pick him up.They have done an amazing job with him and have given me tools on how to work out various situations. Can’t say enough about Animal Magnitism. I refer them to all of my friends!!! More...

The best. I've been using Animal Magnetism for years. 100% reliable, never a cancellation or missed date. They have even bailed me out when I needed dog service at the last minute. They are professional, licensed and insured, and the walkers are trained in animal CPR. Best of all, rates are fair and reasonable. I trust my dog with them whole-heartedly. I highly recommend Animal Magnetism for any pet accommodation needs. You will find no one else better. More...

Lori and Heather are AWESOME! Their entire crew ROCKS! They always provide the best care for their clients both two legged and four legged . .. sometimes even three legged. My dog is not always fond of other dogs, but she is always super happy to go on walks with Animal Magnetism and her pack. When I travel, I never have to worry because I know my pet is snuggled up, safe and secure. I would recommend Animal Magnetism to infinity and beyond. More...

Animal magnetism provides the upmost professional and caring service.  I had been searching for a trust worthy dog sitting establishment for my pets for quite some time now and have found it in animal magnetism . ..I trust my furbabies in the hands of Lori, Heather and their staff for everyone at animal magnetism has love for all animals, and it shows. I was convinced once I had shared my concerns in regards to one of my dogs recent health condition and Heather helped me feel at ease by sharing a mutual experience and provided some ideas and suggestions - showed me that they are caring, knowledgeable and a genuine company.

Lori, Heather and the rest of the team at Animal Magnetism go above and beyond to meet their client's needs (both dogs and owners! ). When my new adopted rescue puppy, Luna, was petrified of strangers and wouldn't let anyone else go near her, the ladies at Animal Magnetism did not give up on her when most would have. They continued to put in the extra time and effort to get to know Luna and gain her trust - spending time beyond what I was paying for... They could not have been more supportive throughout the whole process.  They took her out for the day to  'bond' with their team and allow her to get comfortable. I trust them completely and am in debt to them for helping me adjust to life with a new puppy.   The Animal Magnetism team was highly recommended to me by another dog owner in my building and I would highly recommend them them as well. They are simply PHENOMENAL at what they do. More...

6 Stars!  Lori & Heather are THE Best.  They are the only ones I ever trusted with Akira, my Shiba Inu mix.  While it's been awhile since Akira has passed :( I have just recommended that my neighbor contact Heather and Lori with her dog sitting needs.  That had me thinking that I MUST leave a review for these wonderful ladies.It's so very difficult to find trusting, integrity filled people to worth with (regardless of industry), but look no further...Animal Magnetism to the rescue!

Lori and Heather are awesome! They have gone above and beyond to try to make my pup comfortable with letting them walk her. She's a rescue and has lots of anxiety and is territorial of our home so she won't let anyone come in to walk her. They have been so great to come multiple times to work with her and try to get her used to them. They've been so good and patient with her no matter how frustrating she has been. Thanks Lori and Heather! We really appreciate all you've done for our Roxy girl. More...

Love these ladies so much! Have known them for 4 years and finally was able to get my own pup and now she knows them all too! Miss Charlie just loves her walks! I love that I can fully trust them and have even turned Lori into my own personal dog guru. I text her questions before my Vet! Love the cute little report cards they leave too. I have saved every single one of them. Couldn't imagine trusting  anyone else to watch my baby. More...

Animal Magnetism is the best! Lori is prompt and efficient at returning phone calls, text messages and emails, even on the weekends. The staff is excellent too. Chrystal and Kacie especially take tremendous care of our dog, Bow Wow. We love the little report cards they leave following the visits. The entire staff is energetic and very creative, they take Bow Wow to different places instead of doing the same old boring walk all the time. You can tell they really love animals and are very responsible. At first, I was nervous about using a service like this but Animal Magnetism has definitely alleviated that concern. We have used them for over one year now and I would definitely recommend Animal Magnetism to any dog owner. More...

They're simply the best dog walker for us. They always try to help my family with our Bow wow ( a french bulldog). Every time Bow wow gets his weekly walk, they would leave report of the walk. Last Thanksgiving, they asked their walker if she is available first, then told us that she can walk our dog Bow Wow. So they totally care about their walker too while trying to help us as much as they can. Because of Animal Magnetism we can go to our Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks Lori and Heather! More...

Q&A

Providing peace of mind, security, trust, and love for our client's pets. After 20 years we have become a part of their family too.

After moving out to California from North Carolina in 1995, I pursued my degree in Business from Cal State University. Telecommuting for work and sitting in front of a computer daily was stressful and tiring, but every day I looked forward to being home and taking my dog to the park next door at lunch.

My neighbors recognized that I would be out with my dog everyday and they approached me to take theirs with me. Soon, I was taking a pack of pups with me to the dog park, and had the realization that I could do this all the time! After discussing the idea over with my friend and business partner Heather, we decided to join forces and combine our love for animals to create Animal Magnetism.

We started Animal Magnetism in 1999 and clients multiplied by word of mouth. As a lifelong pet owners, we know exactly what other pet lovers are looking for with their cherished pets: someone to love, exercise, and care for their companion (child). Whether it’s a daily walk, pet sitting, beach excursion or an overnight visit, we have become an important part of our clients pets lives and thus and integral part of their family.

Our company is fully licensed, bonded and insured and we are a participating member of Pet Sitters International. We perform reference, DMV, and background checks on all of our employees through a leading national service – we screen for the best, so that you don’t have to. We only welcome to our team those who mirror our values and vision to provide love and care for your pet.

We are very proud of our staff. They are all people that we trust to watch our own pets. We wouldn’t have it any other way! Our team is very aware that you view your pet as your child. Everyone on Team Animal Magnetism shares a true affinity for all animals.

After almost 20 years in business, we continue to hear how our clients’ pets are so happy when they arrive home. That is the goal of Team Animal Magnetism and that is what puts a smile on our faces.
